You had to know that once the White Sox made the playoffs, the media would come up with a "Curse of The Black Sox" story. They love these things.

It's not a curse if nobody actually believes in it.

Why? Because the arrogant, biased press has nothing better to do then exploit victims of tragedies and to dig up dirt where none exists.

That's why.

May they rot!:angry:

Well, okay. Whole lot of extraneous verbiage. It's the press, so what else is new?

That article would have been a lot shorter with some judicious editing. It might have read something like this:

Reporter: "What about the curse, Ozzie?"
Guillen: "Eight Men Out was a good movie."
Reporter: "What about the curse, Joey?"
Cora: "What curse?"
Whole team in unison: "We ain't afraid of no curse."

The End

"There were precious few students of history on either side, but Guillen was among the few who knew the White Sox beat the Dodgers 11-0 in Game 1 of the 1959 World Series before getting swept."

It's nice to see that he's a student of history, the Sox lost the series in 6 games not 5
